Resolving Immigration Problems In An Honest & Responsible Manner

Family Immigration Archives

Bring family members here, but remember important points

Bringing family members into the United States from another country requires that you fill out immigration paperwork and go through a process. This isn't going to be easy and since the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) tends to run behind on processing times, which can mean that applications take longer than they should. This can make it a challenge to plan for your loved one to come here, but it can also pose problems with the renewals.

Requirements exist to bring your sibling into this country

One of the most difficult things for a person who is coming to the United States has to do is leave some family members behind in their home country. They might promise that they will send for those family members when they settle down in America. There are specific criteria that the person will have to meet if they want to have their loved ones here.

Review your family-based immigration petition carefully

Many people choose to come into the United States from other countries in an effort to live a better life. The opportunities here are amazing, but you have to ensure that you come in as a legal immigrant because failing to do so could badly limit those opportunities. People who are planning on coming here on a family-based visa must ensure that they have everything in order so they can enjoy the benefits of living in this beautiful country.

Tips for bringing a foreign spouse to the United States

Many United States citizens find their spouses overseas. When this happens, the goal of the couple is usually to have both of them living in the same country. If you are in this position and want to bring your spouse to the U.S., you need to remember that this might not be such an easy process.

Family-based immigration provides a valuable opportunity for some

People who are naturalized citizens and lawful permanent residents might choose to bring their family members to live with them in the United States. Family-based immigration is a program that allows you to do this as long as the person meets specific requirements set forth by the United States government. If you are in this position, you need to ensure you do things properly.

Can I help my sister come live with me in the United States?

Imagine you're the lucky sibling -- the one who was born in the United States, so you have citizenship. Your sister, on the other hand, is still living in your home country under harsh conditions and it breaks your heart to see her separated from you like this. Can you do something, as a United States citizen, to help her come to live with you?

New immigrant caravan headed to United States

There is no doubt that it is a scary time to be an immigrant from Latin America today in the United States. Recent news reports of a crackdown on Honduran emigres who are currently in a caravan heading for Mexico's northern border offer no encouragement to those fleeing violence and oppression in their homelands.

Can I help my brother come to the United States?

It's not easy to live in the United States away from your much-loved siblings. Nevertheless, the strictness of U.S. immigration law means that it could be difficult for them to come for a visit depending on their home countries. It also could be difficult for them to move to the United States to live and work.
